AndyF The halt and loading dock, on what was originally part of the old ironworks sidings/incline. The decaying remains of the winding house and associated parts can be seen to the right of the tunnel cutting in the distance.... but don't look too far behind the tunnel, as the curtains and window sill somewhat spoil the illusion!

SalfordYorkStreet I love the platforms and field they look so realistic!

AndyF Thank you SalfordYorkStreet. Ahh, the benefits of mobile phone photography lol! All the fields are either grassmats or hanging basket liners topped off with static grass from a plastic squeezy bottle, none of this expensive electrified seive stuff by the way! The halt and loading dock are just balsa blocks edged with matchsticks over Wills planking on the halt, and Wills stone sheet on the loading dock. The surface of the halt is very fine sandpaper blended with ash and scatter, the top of the dock is just a fuzzy Javis grassmat offcut, with bits shaved off it to add some character to it. All cheap and cheerful here :
